I believe I have mentioned that I try to avoid politics like the plague several times in this journal. Now with the news dominated by the democratic convention I'm pretty much past my political limit lately. The TV, radio, my internet log in screen, even the local movie theater is playing Michael Moore's current propaganda movie -- everywhere I turn there is some sort of political message. And now for the kicker, today I get a form letter with John Kerry listed as the sender. They are trying to hit me up for money to support his presidential campaign.
